The archaic appearance of the Japanese blacksmithing hammer reveals little about its inner qualities. In relation to its weight, the strongly asymmetrical face, which tapers from a square cross-section to the round strike surface, provides for high impact force as well as rebound-free and fatigue-free working. Partially hardened and delicately balanced, it supports the impact rhythm during forging work. Replacement shafts are available.
